Matroushkas

Hello. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my clothes hangers. Yesterday my husband and I took the day off, to go to Amsterdam, more specific to the Hermitage Museum. This is indeed a part of the famous museum in St. Petersburg, and parts of its collection are exposed in Amsterdam. This time there is an exhibition of the Impressionist, including beautiful paintings of Monet, Pissarro and Renoir. It had been a long time since I visited an exhibition like this, but it was absolutely worth it.

At home, I’ve been sewing again. Not really something new, but an familiar item: a Knitting Needle Organizer.

This is what I started with. Using turquoise and pink, which is an unusual combination for me.

Inside again a lot of pockets for dpns and circular needles, scissors and haberdashery.

On the back cute matroushkas.

And on the front again an embroidered panel.

This time I did it right!

This week I finished another flower scarf. I guess I always have one on the needles, but it is just so much fun to make one of these, that I just keep going on making them.

Last week I told you about the fiasco of the knitting needle organizer. I also said I would try again; so I did, and this time it all worked out fine.

Indeed a little pile of three! The one in the middle you know is my own, and the one on the bottom is the new organizer made with the red Tartan.

For the inside this time no flowers, but a different fabric:

And because I like making these so much, I made another one in a totally different kind of style.

Next week I’m going on a holiday, and after I come back, one of these organizers will be in the shop, as will the flower scarf.
